SONG PICK: The Native – Chasing Highs

Luckily, or in this case sadly, the world does not stand still and other serious topics like drug overdose deserve our attention as well. Indie-rockers The Native, at home in Plymouth, West England, took the tragic passing of a local young woman to come up with the concept for “Chasing Highs”. Frontman and guitarist Charlie Noordewier explains:

“You don’t often hear about events like this happening in our home town, especially with someone at such a young age. It really highlighted to us how a lot of the younger generations aren’t properly educated on these issues and how easy it is for someone so young to do something without thinking about the consequences”.

The serious lyrical content is juxtaposed by a high energy rhythm and a lovely melody, lending the track an irresistibly catchy vibe.  Listen to “Chasing Highs”, our Song Pick of the Day:

Lyrics:

Scaling Mount Olympus
Looking for relief
She’s kicking up a fuss
Whilst reaching for her key
Her friends one by one
They slowly fade away
She stays
It’s going to her head
It affects her everyday

Chasing Highs
She’ll never be satisfied
Naive and desperate insensibility
Chasing Highs
She tries to leave her mind behind
Wastes her life
Escapes insanity

One more week
And then she says she’ll stop
Nearly at the peak
But it’s never enough

Chasing Highs
She’ll never be satisfied
Naive and desperate insensibility
Chasing Highs
She tries to leave her mind behind
Wastes her life
Escapes insanity

The problem isn’t with voluntary ingestion the problem lies with national misinvestment
The problem isn’t with voluntary ingestion the problem lies with national misinvestment

Chasing Highs
She’ll never be satisfied
Naive and desperate insensibility
Chasing Highs
She tries to leave her mind behind
Wastes her life
Escapes insanity
